    Yes, it is kind of like a mainstream network's version of Black Mirror, but it was still entertaining. Sarah Shahi was definitely the highlight of the show and makes some of the weirdness work more than it probably should. There is a strong supporting cast and they do a good job with the material (except for Jessica Lu).

    For those looking for a smart series to fuel debates about the implications of virtual reality, you'll instead find some network-level special effects and armchair psychology. But if you're looking for a case-of-the-week procedural dealing with grief, loss and escapism, Reverie will do the trick.

    Unlike “Black Mirror” though, NBC’s series doesn’t seem like it will get too bogged down with misanthropy and nihilism. The virtual reality setting is a blank canvas that invites play, and the procedural element of Mara regularly retrieving lost souls gives the series an optimistic and hopeful bent. There’s plenty of fun here, but with enough pathos to add weight.

    Reverie is brightly colored and nicely designed when it’s tripping. But it’s also all over the place, and probably not worth the overall trouble of trying to grasp whatever the rules of this game are, were or will be.
